Penn State Nittany Lions Hockey TicketsPenn State has long had an ice hockey team, but from the 1970s to the 2010s, the sport remained at a club level. The evolution of the Nittany Lions program has been very recent. Penn State fielded its first varsity men's and women's hockey teams in 2012. Today, the Penn State Nittany Lions hockey team plays in the Big Ten, one of the most competitive conferences in Division I. For such a young program, Penn State fares very well when going up against more established schools like Wisconsin and Michigan. In their first season, 2012-13, the Nittany Lions put up a respectable 13-14 record. These days, they're doing better, and fans are loving it. For example, in 2019-20, the Nittany Lions posted a record of 18-9-3. The Penn State Nittany Lions are one of the most exciting and fastest-growing programs in all of NCAA hockey.
